Sunshine Cruz, On How She Raises Her Children Alone

Sunshine Cruz, turning 41 this July has perfected the art of being glamorous without emptying her wallet.

In fact, “I only shop once in awhile,” said the Kapamilya actress. And she shops wisely, avoiding the luxury items, “Pambili ko na lang ng needs para sa kids.“ I used to have Hermes Birkin and Kelly, but I don’t think it’s practical para sa isang single mom like me kaya I’ve disposed of them.”

(a) With each Hermes bag having a price tag of at least PHP100,000 and its resell value possibly going higher, the actress decided to sell them.

“Marami namang nagmamahal sa akin at nagreregalo ng bags, okey na ako dun.” She shared the one luxurious thing she won’t scrimp on is her “pamper time,” which means, “gym time…facials and treatments, or South Salon time for her.”

(a) The 41-year-old mom has three daughters with actor Cesar Montano to whom she is passing on her good spending habits.

The eldest, Angelina, is 16, Samantha is 14, and the youngest, Chesca, is 12.

All three are honor students at De La Salle Santiago Zobel.

According to Sunshine, she has trained them to be disciplined and not to be “maluho.”

(a) “I always tell them to buy things we need and not what we want.”

But on her birthday, Sunshine was greeted by her daughter Sam with this message on Instagram, “You always work hard for our needs and even sometimes our wants and for that you are such a great mom.”

Touched, the proud mommy explained, “Pero kapag siyempre special occasions or matataas ang grades, palaging may reward ‘yan from me.”


In a previous interview , Sunshine had said, “Sometimes, I could be a spoiler if they deserve it, but I could also be strict.”


But added she is confident “they’ll grow up to be good people naman because I always talk to them. “Parang barkada, we’re like barkadas, and I think it’s working naman.”
